Diabetic foot infections (DFIs) are common and represent the leading cause for hospitalization among diabetic complications. Without proper management, DFIs may lead to amputation, which is associated with a decreased quality of life and increased mortality. However, there is currently significant variation in the management of DFIs, and many providers fail to perform critical prevention and assessment measures. In this review, we will provide an overview of the diagnosis, management, and discharge planning of hospitalized patients with DFIs to guide hospitalists in the optimal inpatient care of patients with this condition...

Carbon is usually used as cathode material for Li-O2 batteries. However, the discharge product, such as Li2O2 and LiO2, could react with carbon to form insulating lithium carbonate layer, resulting in cathode passivation and capacity fading. To solve this problem, the development of non-carbon cathode is highly demanded. Herein, we have successfully synthesized MnCo2O4 (MCO) nanoparticles anchored on porous MoO2 nanosheets that are grown on Ni foam (current collector) (MCO/MoO2@Ni), acting as a carbon- and binder-free cathode for Li-O2 batteries, in an attempt to improve the electrical conductivity, electrocatalytic activity and durability...

Hollow carbon nanospheres (HCNs) with specific surface areas up to 2949 m2 g-1 and pore volume up to 2.9 cm3 g-1 were successfully synthesized from polyaniline-co-polypyrrole hollow nanospheres by carbonization and CO2 activation. The cavity diameter and wall thickness of HCNs can be easily controlled by activation time. Owing to their large inner cavity and enclosed structure, HCNs are desirable carriers for encapsulating sulfur. To better understand the effects of pore characteristics and sulfur contents on the performances of lithium-sulfur batteries, three composites of HCNs and sulfur are prepared and studied in detail...

Amorphous poly(ethylene ether carbonate) (PEEC), which is a copolymer of ethylene oxide and ethylene carbonate, was synthesized by ring-opening polymerization of ethylene carbonate. This route overcame the common issue of low conductivity of poly(ethylene oxide)(PEO)-based solid polymer electrolytes at low temperatures, and thus the solid polymer electrolyte could be successfully employed at the room temperature. Introducing the ethylene carbonate units into PEEC improved the ionic conductivity, electrochemical stability and lithium transference number compared with PEO...
